I stayed here for a Friday business trip that I extended into a long weekend. This hotel was very good for both business and leisure travel. It's location on the Chicago River just off Michigan Avenue places it at the heart of the city's business area. At the same time, the hotel is within walking distance of the restaurants in River North, shopping on the Magnificent Mile, concerts and other events in Millennium Park and the treasures of the Art Institute.
Rooms are well appointed, clean and comfortable for either the business or leisure traveler. The business center has several free access internet terminals for the use of guests.
Unfortunately, the hotel lacks a restaurant or breakfast area. Nearby are the Corner Bakery and other popular breakfast spots, but that does require going out in the weather to get there - not always a great thing in Chicago. This is the only drawback that leads me to give the hotel a four star rather than a five star rating.
